Simon Buckley and Othmar Farré Present FOUNDATION PAINTING SHOW
Jedrzej Cichosz, Olga Cerkasova, Adrian Falkner, Michael Fullerton, Paula Henrike Herrmann, Jan Kiefer, Andrew Kerr, Mathis Gasser, Raphael Linsi, Sophie Mackfall, France-Lise McGurn, Victoria Morton, Alys Owen, Max Ruf, Justin Stephens, Mandy Ure, Anna Diehl
Instead of being hung on a gallery wall, the paintings in this accessible and playful exhibition are placed on sofas in the window of the British Heart Foundation shop on Stockwell Street. Each day, Simon Buckley and Othmar Farré will arrange a new configuration of three or four pieces by a host of international artists.
Placed on the sofas, the paintings project a hard-won casualness, a contorted scene set and there they sit, hiding in plain sight, quietly championing the relevance of a little bit of irreverence.
Supported by Glasgow International. With thanks to The British Heart Foundation.
Thu 20 April – Mon 7 May
Mon – Fri, 9.30am-5.30pm
